1  I made YARN! in Spinning: Completed Projects by circus on: February 20, 2008 01:13:59 AM
And you know I had to come show it off..
2-ply, roving bought at handpaintedyarn.com. Thick-n-thin cause I was slacking (it is 4am..). But I love it.

2  Storage!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by circus on: January 13, 2008 06:17:53 PM
After yet another trip to the yarn store today, I decided it was time to find somewhere to store all this crap. Ideally I would have a nice big apartment with an extra room to store everything in, but in a group house with 4 other people, thats not happening. So, here's what I came up with:
Champagne box for needles-



closet yarn storage-


I would love to hear everyone else's methods of organization!

3  Owl Cuff!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by circus on: January 11, 2008 08:03:48 PM
I made this quite some time ago and found it tonight while looking for my Pippi Longstocking movie (couldn't find her, though). My sewing is a little off because I used my mom's fancy pants sewing machine. The image is printed on the fabric.

4  Handspun Armwarmer(s) in Knitting: Completed Projects by circus on: January 11, 2008 07:58:13 PM
So, I'm done with the first arm warmer. This was first a fetching, but was frogged cause it was ugly as sin. I then made it a basic ribbed cuff arm warmer. It was a bit big, so I felted it lightly. Its not dry yet but I like it much much more than all other versions.

5  Felting the Fetching? Good Idea or No? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by circus on: January 06, 2008 10:30:16 PM
So I finished my first fetching with some lovely hand dyed wool I found on ebay (seller: inaspin) but stupidly knit this on needles that were a bit too big. So my poor little fetching is large and bulky. Can I felt it? Will it totally ruin my beautiful cables? Help!

6  I got my new yarn!! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by circus on: December 29, 2007 01:41:47 PM
I'm in LOVE with my new handspun yarn!




sorry my pictures aren't so great. The color is much more rich.
Its 100% rambouilette wool- worsted weight.  Supposedly itch-free.
Smaller skein was $10 and larger was $14. Shipping from New Mexico to D.C. was DIRT cheap and didn't take as long as I'd expected.
The ebay seller was inaspin

Question #1 There is a bit of debris in the yarn. How can I clean this out? It seems to work alright if I just run it through my fingers while putting it into balls. Any other suggestions?

Annnd.. What can I make? There's about 300 yards.
